GU HYDRATION DRINK TABS
Sometimes you are riding in the sun all day and just can’t drink enough fluids to stay hydrated. And sometimes you just can’t stomach another bottle of sugary drink mix. GU Hydration Drink Tabs offers an effective low-calorie, low-sugar way to replace lost electrolytes and regulate fluid loss. Just one of these small tabs per bottle delivers 320mg of sodium and 55mg of potassium, helping stave off the devastating impacts of dehydration, like cramps and headaches. You get all the electrolytes you need without the sugar that can upset your stomach. And with a slight fizziness and only a light flavor, we have no problem drinking bottle after bottle. You can drink these before, during and after workouts for optimal hydration.$25/48 tabs;guenergy.com
FLOYD’S OF LEADVILLE CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER RECOVERY BAR
CBD is very much in its infancy as a sports recovery tool, but many people swear by it, including Floyd Landis who turned to it to help ditch traditional painkillers after a devastating crash and hip replacement. We’ll learn more in the coming years about how CBD affects recovery, but for now we like these Chocolate Peanut Butter Recovery Bars a lot. Many recovery or protein bars can end up tasting artificial, and can be a chore. Not Floyd’s bars; they use natural ingredients like peanut and almond butter, real chocolate, seeds and 10 grams of plant-based protein, resulting in a delicious taste. The 25mg of THC-free CBD in this 190-calorie bar help you relax and recover from your workout. $5/bar; floydsofleadville.com
